Cal Poly Landscape Architecture Student Wins Design Competition

One of this year's winners of the fifth annual Wayne Grace Memorial Student Design Competition is Bronwen Mastro from Cal Poly's Landscape Architecture Department in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design.

The purpose of this annual design competition is to gather outstanding examples of landscape architectural work which clearly demonstrate how the practice of landscape architecture and licensing affects the quality of life. Each winning student received a cash award of $1,000.00 from the competition's sponsor, the Landscape Architectural Registration Boards Foundation.

The judges found that the winning entries covered a "wide-range of issues impacting public health, safety and welfare, many of which are not clearly seen or easily understood by the public and legislators."

The winning projects depicted how landscape architects apply specialized knowledge and skill to create design solutions that address important social problems and protect the natural environment.

Mastro's project, "Synergy: Culture and Ecology Converging," applied ecology, sociology and aesthetics to a master plan for a site situated along the San Joaquin River in one of the most productive agricultural regions of the country.

The competition was open to any student or team of students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate Landscape Architectural Degree Program.
